Its new Celebrate fund offers grants of between £300 and £10,000 for groups to hold one off events or activities which celebrate their local community and bring people together.
You could celebrate something in your local history or a local community hero. You could bring people together to get to know their neighbours better.
To be eligible, you must be a voluntary or community organisation with a constitution and your own bank account, or a school or statutory body.
Applications for funding opened yesterday, the 6th July 2016.
Applications will be assessed on a first come, first served basis until all funds are awarded.
